As I have many observant followers, you may have noticed that this little blog passed a (for me) significant milestone recently: over 10,000 people made the decision to follow ‘Dutch goes the Photo’!
First of a great, big, heartfelt Thank You!! When I decided to take a stab at getting earnest about running this blog in January of 2016, I had no idea that it could grow to this level. It’s been a bit of work to get here and there definitely were a couple of detours to find out what I can contribute that might be of interest to folks in the blogosphere!
Dora Bean thanks you too!
This blog was actually started about 8 years ago, but I failed to make an impact with it. So, just under four years ago, I decided to take a WordPress 101 course that promised to teach me the basics of getting a blog up and running. The exercises in the 4 week course were invaluable and taught me a lot of the basics.
Beyond the basics there were a couple of other factors that have helped out:
- Listening to feedback from fellow bloggers and readers to learn what might be of interest
- Building a regular cadence to posting on the blog, which created something that readers would expect on a recurring basis
- A bit of elbow grease…
Let’s see where we go to from here! Thank you again!
